"The greatest glory in living lies not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall."
- Nelson Mandela
Nelson Mandela Park Public School is an inner city school offering JK to Grade 8 programs. We are located in the heart of Regent Park in a recently rebuilt state of the art building that is bright, beautiful, and filled with lots of amazing spaces for learning. We have a student body of just over 500 students that is incredibly diverse with over 30 different home languages represented at our school. Nelson Mandela Park PS has a dedicated staff who work their utmost to serve the needs of our school community. We are focussed on building a "Culture of Caring" at our school that addresses the social and emotional wellbeing of students, but also extends to caring about ensuring high quality teaching and learning for all of our students.
The original Park School was built in 1853. The present Nelson Mandela Park School is the oldest public school in Toronto on its original site. It should be noted that our school was renamed in October of 2001 in honour of Nelson Mandela when he came to visit our school.
